having been married a long time, my husband sometimes needs a gentle reminder of a special occasion. on the morning of our 35th anniversary we were sitting at the breakfast table when i hinted, "honey, do you realize that we've been sitting in these same two seats for exactly 35 years?"
putting down the newspaper, he looked straight at me and said, "so, you want to switch seats?"
